Slight drift here... My Sealord has teak decks..... I had too much red wine and liqueur and had a snooze after lunch today and fell into what one would call a daydream... :wink: It was very realistic...lying to an anchor in a quiet cove...you know the sort of thing.....and then...in my daydream I wo...

Re: Ed Dubois RIP

I concur. I met him because he once lived near me when I lived in Chelsea, London. A charming fellow. Designer of my Sealord 39. Fantastic designer. Great loss to us all and very sad for his family and close friends, and only 65 ! What a waste...

Re: Westerly Internal Varnish

No, I haven't. But I was offered a Stampe biplane when I lived in Sussex 7 years ago about to move to Gib. I nearly bought it but didn't when I found out there was no hangarage available in Gib Airport, otherwise, yes, I would love to own a biplane too.

Re: Westerly Internal Varnish

While we are on the subject, I have discovered the existence of a fantastic varnish. It is called "COO-VAR" Yacht and Seaplane Varnish. Clear. I particularly like it because it keeps very well after the tin is opened, it spreads very well and is easy to rub down and the brush is very easy to clean a...

Re: Westerly Internal Varnish

I never had the chance to, that's the thing....I was given the details by the Westerly yard in their last months of operation. I could not use it because the hardener went astray, mainly, and then the metal can looked dangerously close to leaking so I had to dispose of it, unfortunately.

Re: Westerly Internal Varnish

That is correct Nigel, "Morrel" rings a bell...
It was supplied in a one gallon can accompanied by a plastic bottle containing the hardener.
In my case, the plastic bottle went astray, then the base of the can developed serious rust, and I thought it prudent to dispose of it. :shock:

Re: Westerly Internal Varnish

The "varnish" used on Oceanlords and Sealords was not a varnish in the conventional sense. It was a two part epoxy arrangement. It came in one gallon tin cans accompanied by the hardener in a half pint plastic container. The name of it is hidden in the mists of time. I will search my archives to see...

Re: Conway lists to starboard

Yes, I have an idea why this might be the case.
You ought to make sure the mast is perfectly upright.
All you need is a few degrees off to port or starboard and a small perplexing list might develop. :o

Re: Sealord Owners

I am not up to date with this.
Is this the Sealord that was dismasted between Ushuaia and Capetown, or is it another one supposedly in the Canaries?

MD 17D Engine.

Anyone here have a Volvo MD 17 D Engine ?
If you do, I have to fit new feet on mine and need to know the size of the slots so as to know which bolts will fit snugly.
Millimeters will do.
Can anyone advise please.
Thanks in advance.
